Congress 2020 Welcome video


On behalf of everybody here at Western University,
I am honoured and excited to welcome you to the Congress of Humanities and Social Sciences
hosted here in London from May 30 – June 5 I have been thinking a lot about Congress
2020… Western has one of the most beautiful campuses
and it’s in a part of the country where I think there’s a lot of interesting things
to learn about our culture and our history. London’s got it all – a beautiful, walkable
downtown close to the Thames River waterfront, a vibrant culinary scene and scores of activities
that highlight local art culture and music. Congress attendees will experience the great Western
facilities; 30 buildings and 500 classrooms will be utilized over the course of the week. The theme of bridging divides and confronting
settler colonialism and anti-black racism is not only a serious issue it’s a really
urgent issue. The conference will allow us to explore our
differences but still find common ground towards our just society. We’re really excited about how Congress is
coming together… At Western were working very hard to be a
place where collaboration, debate, scholarship, and leadership thrive. Congress 2020 provides
an outstanding opportunity to bring individuals from across the country together to share
exciting new ideas. I’m really pleased that Congress is doing
this. I’m really pleased that Western is hosting this. Come and bridge divides with us at Western. And we can’t wait to see you in London next
spring.
